The Blue Grass Cook Book

This 1904 book is a loving testament to the power of food-inspired memory, while being evocative of the sights, smells, and tastes of Kentucky in the 1900s. Most importantly, the book was groundbreaking, over one hundred years ago, in its celebration of the vital role Black women played in building and sustaining the tradition of Southern cooking and Southern hospitality. ...more

Country Cooking in the Blue Grass state of Kentucky!

This cookbook was first published in 1904 by native Kentuckian Minnie C. Fox.

Much more than just another cookbook, this one expresses the "deeper symbiotic relationship between black and white women in long-ago southern kitchens".

Minnie Fox understood the great contribution to the cuisine of the day from African American women. The people of the time however were not ready to embrace this and the book went into obscurity for over a century.
